This newly minted museum is one of the most important stops on a trip through Florence. Here you will see great works of art and also understand the Cupola construction because the Opera del Duomo is the organisation which was placed in charge of creating the Cathedral and the Cupola. A visit here will truly help one understand Florence's vast... More

A lot of thought went into this completely redesigned museum. The choir room was amazing: three ancient choir books displayed and one can choose which one to listen to with a choral group singing. The atrium which was once the cemetery between the Duomo and Baptistry is quite well curated and replica of the original front of the Duomo, before... More

Opera Duomo Museum is located in the back of the Florence Duomo, and contains several original masterpiece in the past located in Duomo itself. The modern internal architecture and arrangement create a nice contrast with the old piece shown. Absolutely remarkable is Pietà from Michelangelo (even better than the one in San Pietro), Maddalena wooden statue from Donatello, and Battistero... More

The renovated Opera Del Duomo is a must see. Not just because you can see the actual Ghiberti bronze doors and the Donatello sculptures, but because everything is laid out in such an educational way.

The restauration of the museum improved the experience very much. It now has a great room for the Piëta of Michelangelo so you can admire one of his last statues on all sides. Next to this the story of the history of the Duomo is gold in a nice way with lots of info on the first duomo build in... More

You cannot describe the suggestion deriving from the compendium of wonderful artworks, carefully restored and exhibited with ingenious solutions to allow the views and understanding. Architectural location housing them is itself noteworthy. Centuries and centuries os artists, sculptors, painters, weavers, architects...

This new museum is, quite simply, astonishing. It chronicles the building of the Duomo, with many original artefacts, sculptures, etc. Beautifully set out, with a terrace on the 3rd floor overlooking the dome of the Duomo. One of the main attractions are the original bronze doors from the Brunelleschi,Baptistery. There is a really good video showing how the Duomo, and... More

Recently re-opened to the public. the new museum leaves you speechless. The reconstruction of part of the facade of the Medieval Duomo inside the museum is unexpected and incredible. The same goes for the Campanille Hall and the Dome Hall. The whole museum is one of the best I have ever seen all over the world. Plus the Michelangelo Pieta,... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
